ark event
Against the reality of the extinction crisis that global warming and ocean acidification present, Paul Pearce-Kelly discusses the Frozen Ark imperative to preserve the genetic heritage of our planet’s biodiversity before it is lost forever.

‘We all have feelings for art and music, all the wonderful things that people have produced, the pleasure one gets from nature is allied to that’
~ Professor Bryan Clarke FRS, Frozen Ark co-founder, (1932 -2014)

Paul Pearce-Kelly, Trustee of the Frozen Ark Charity and Senior Curator of Invertebrates, Lower Vertebrates and Research at the Zoological Society London will be joined by Tim Flach, Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and award winning photographer. Tim’s photography aims to promote discussion and encourage debate and is used in publicity for the Frozen Ark. He is currently working on his next project ‘Endangered’, due for publication the Summer of 2017.
